Ian is an excellent guide, full of information on the various types of wildlife. We saw dear and sea eagles, as well as a few other smaller things. Well worth the price.

I found a brochure and decided this would be an ideal and reasonably priced attraction to take my teenage son. We took the full day safari and our guide, Ian, could not have been more informative. We saw red deer, red squirrel, a seal, beautiful birds and various flora and fauna indigenous to Scotland. We had a 7 hour tour booked but he extended it so we could enjoy the most spectacular scenery at Kinloch Hourn. We stopped at a small tea house and were treated with warm Scottish hospitality. I highly recommend Ian's tours and I am looking forward to going backin October for the deer rut!

we got the idea from a brochure / leaflet we picked up whilst in scotland

i phoned last minute to try to get on an afternoon safari to try and see some wild deer.

Ian was fully booked but offered to take us out in the evening, just my wife and I##we booked a 4 hour safari which cost £35 each and met Ian at his house before departing on the tour in a minibus

Ian took us all over the place in search of various elusive birds, we did not see any but were not too worried as the deer were the attraction for us.

after not too long we saw a number of female deer grazing and Ian had binoculars and a scope for us to use, the scope was great really made us feel clsoe to the deer

after a whilewe carried on further and came across a mother and baby deer standing not more than 20 feet from us. this was very special and I felt quite priviledged to see them so close


later we saw eight stags on the hill side, these were magnificent, again the scope made us feel very close to them

We were out with Ian for 4 hours and he really made the trip fun, he was very friendly and knowledgable, I very much enjoyed his company and would recommend you to try one of his safaris
